Close Up is a unisex fragrance that was created by Annick Mennardo. It features top notes of coffee, spices and cherry; middle notes of tobacco, patchouli, Atlas cedarwood and Provence rose; and base notes of ambergris, musk and tonka bean.
Close Up was a finalist in the Independent category for an Art and Olfaction Awards. These awards are presented to just four perfumes and one experimental scent project a year. They are designed to raise public interest and awareness around new developments in independent perfumery. The awards are given to outstanding creators in the categories of independent, artisan and experimental perfume from across the globe.
From the award submission:
From the inner self to the outside world, from the smallest to the largest, the composition of Close Up revels in contrast and the oscillation between opposites. Intense and contrasting, the amber tones combine with a freshness. It has a full bodied character that blends seamlessly with anise and green coffee. Zooming in even closer, each ingredient gains in intensity and distinctness.
Close Up is an eau de parfum, edp.
